A public consultation is underway on a proposal to reduce the opening hours of St Davids’ Sports Hall in Pembrokeshire
Pembrokeshire County Council’s Leisure service are attempting to identify cost reductions and efficiency savings and therefore this is one possible option to do that.
A survey has identified that usage at the hall is very low on Thursday and Sunday mornings and the service is proposing to close the hall during these periods.
This would help meet cost reduction/efficiency savings targets and safeguard overall provision at the hall.
Additionally, the facility would close on Friday evenings between 4pm and 8pm during the summer school holidays (26th July – 30th August inclusive).
St David’s Sports Hall can be found at Ysgol Dewi Sant, St David’s, Pembrokeshire, SA62 6QH. It has a Fitness suite and Sports hall and offers Classes on a Tuesday, Thursday and Friday including Core and Stretch, Pilates and Kettlebells Sessions.
The current opening times are:
Monday - 8am until 12pm and 4pm until 9pm
Tuesday - 8am until 12pm and 4pm until 8pm
Wednesday - 8am until 12pm and 4pm until 9pm
Thursday - 8am until 12pm and 4pm until 8pm
Friday - 8am until 12pm and 4pm until 8pm
Saturday - 8am until 11am
Sunday - 9.30am until 12.30pm
Leisure service officers have spoken to St David’s City Council who accept that it would not be an effective use of funds to try to keep the hall open at these times.
Pembrokeshire County Council’s Head of Cultural, Leisure and Registration Services Mike Cavanagh said: “We constantly review activity across all ten of our Leisure Centres and Sports Halls and we are keen to hear the views of users of the hall and those in the wider community on the proposals before a final decision is made,”
“We are also interested in other ideas or suggestions people may have on ways Pembrokeshire Leisure could meet its cost reduction/efficiency savings targets.”
